The Guarneri Underground like no other group on the planet

   On Aug. 7 at 6:30 p.m., the upbeat, danceable music of the Guarneri Underground comes to Duvall's McCormick Park.
   Featuring the virtuoso six-string electric violin of Jeffrey Sick, the world percussion and African Blues Guitar of Mohammad Shaibu from Ghana West Africa, the flamenco guitar wizardry of Eric Jaeger and a seriously grooving rhythm section, the Guarneri Underground has built a passionate and growing following of fans in the Northwest and beyond. Gary Bannister of "5/4" magazine describes their mix of world music, jazz, funk, new age, rock and blues as "a world's fair of music that tantalizes with its sounds, sights and smells." The Guarneri Underground sound is sure to amaze and delight, and make you want to move your feet!
   Belmark's Arts Onstage in the Park is presented by the Duvall Arts Commission, the King County Arts Commission and local business sponsors. For more information about these concerts and for directions to McCormick Park, visit www.cityofduvall.com/dac.
   For those with mobility impairments that make accessing the park difficult, the city of Duvall is providing free shuttle service.
   The shuttle van leaves from City Hall on Main Street every 15 minutes beginning at 6 p.m.
